I'm traveling with my partner through Paris and London, and we're looking for cheap accommodations. I heard there's the "London House Gay Hostel" but it looks like it's a bit far out of central London. Anyone have suggestions?
This is the London gay guide by Nighttours. London has to be one of the most attractive cities in Europe for the gay visitor: a vast amount of bars, cafes, clubs, restaurants and theatres, all located in the historic centre. The main gay area has to be Sohojust west of the West End, where all theatres are located and north of China Town. Main gay street is Old Compton Streetwhere many bars are located.
London is a tolerant city, so few hotels feel the need to wave the rainbow flag in their window. However, according to the London Tourist Board, the following hotels are officially gay friendly. All rooms are en suite; the serviced apartments on the upper floors come complete with kitchenette.
London is home to the largest LGBT population in the world, so of course the gay scene is among the best in the world. There are a few up-and-coming gay areas outside the city center, especially in the East End neighborhoods of Shoreditch and Dalston. However, because these are far from the main highlights that tourists want to see, we have focused on hotels near Soho.
George Clooney has called for a boycott of nine luxury hotels, including the Dorchester on Park Lane in London, because of their links to Brunei, which plans to impose death by stoning as a punishment for gay sex and adultery from next week. In a novel form of political activism aimed at the global elite, he called for the public to join him in immediately boycotting the hotels operated by the Dorchester Collection luxury chain: three in the UK, two in the US, two in France and two in Italy. Are we really going to help fund the murder of innocent citizens? But you can shame the banks, the financiers and the institutions that do business with them and choose to look the other way.
This is where Z Hotels started back in From the outside you see classical architectural proportions, while inside there are 85 rooms arranged around a central courtyard. Step into your Z room and it all makes sense.
Excited for my first trip to London and, I'll admit, the falling pound this month Since I don't want to disturb the friend I'm staying with by staggering in at odd hours, I'm planning on getting a hotel for us. But as I've never been, before, and while I can see things on a map, I have no feel for how transportation really is between them Bloomsbury - Marble Arch.
